    Assuming it's a rar file that you passowrd protected and forgot the password for...
    there's programs out there that will do it for you, but the only way that I'm aware of is a brute force attack, which is both time and cpu intensive. A brute force attack will go through aaaaaa through zzzzzz and everything in between, inlcuding numbers and depending if the password contains special characters, it will take even longer.
